House Exterior Design Ideas

When it comes to exterior design, trends change rapidly and it’s often hard to keep up. On the other hand, you don’t necessarily have to follow every trend in order to have a charming home with a contemporary exterior design. If you’re planning a renovation of your home’s exterior anytime soon, read on to find out what the hottest remodeling trends are.

Color combinations

Finding the right color combination for your home depends on many factors: where you live, what your neighborhood looks like, whether your home is built in a particular style, and whether you’re trying to blend in or stand out. If there’s a lot of stone and concrete around your home, you could combine pearl gray with slate blue and add a bit of white for your home to step into the view quietly. On the other hand, if you have a big garden and a lot

Interior Design for Living Rooms

Your living room can be formal, or it can be the place where you spend the majority of your time at home. Regardless of which version yours falls into, remember to consider the function as well as the comfort of your space as you design it.

Living Room Basics

Formal Living Room

A living room can be a formal space for receiving visitors, a casual space for your family to gather or a combination of both formal and informal uses.

Formal Living Rooms

Formal living rooms are usually situated near the front of a home for receiving guests. A typical arrangement would include a sofa and two armchairs, or a sofa and loveseat combination. The formal living area can also double as a library for your home with the addition of bookcases to display favorite books and accessories.

Informal Living Rooms

If a home has a formal living area, there is

Thanks to Sheltering in Place, Animal Shelters Are Empty

The Riverside County Animal Shelter has a beautiful problem: It’s all out of adoptable animals. “As you can see, we have a completely empty adoption center,” animal services director Julie Bank says in a video posted Wednesday on the California shelter’s Instagram account. She and her coworkers, all wearing masks, throw their arms up and cheer, showing off empty pen after empty pen. A few days earlier, on Sunday, Chicago Animal Care and Control’s Adoptable Pets program had similar news. “CACC has no dogs currently available for adoption,” the shelter told its Facebook followers. “We’ve never typed those words before.” The last adoptable dogs—a “short, squat beefcake” named Penn and a “boisterous babe” named Alley—had found loving homes that day.

All over the country, from New York to Wisconsin and North Carolina to Colorado and New Mexico, animal shelters are reporting massive upswings in the numbers of animals they’ve been

Guac ‘n’ Roll: How a Recycled College Menu Design Became a Classic Led Zeppelin Poster

Tuten's poster for Led Zeppelin, April 24-27, 1969, Fillmore West and Winterland, was an update of an assignment for a class in college.

When the origin stories of San Francisco’s “Big Five” rock-poster artists of the 1960s are told, they usually include Wes Wilson’s epiphany upon seeing an exhibition of Viennese Secessionist posters, whose lettering style he would embrace as his own; Stanley Mouse and Alton Kelley’s appropriation of a 1913 illustration of a rose-crowned skeleton, which the duo repurposed for a Grateful Dead poster; the influence of Southern California surf and car culture on Rick Griffin; and the oft-repeated fact that Victor Moscoso was the only one of the bunch who had any formal art training, whose rules he systematically ignored.

“San Francisco was always in the back of my mind when I was living in Los Angeles.”

In contrast, Randy Tuten, one of San

How The Folio Society designs its gorgeous collector’s editions of Game of Thrones

When it comes to incredible, elaborate collector’s editions of books, it’s tough to beat The Folio Society, which has in recent years began to expand out into the worlds of fantasy and science fiction. And hot on the heels of its edition of George R.R. Martin’s first book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series, A Game of Thrones, the company has announced today its collector’s edition of the second book, A Clash of Kings.

Like the Folio edition of A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings isn’t cheap: it’ll run the same $195 as the first book, making this a purchase only for the biggest Game of Thrones fans and collectors — especially for those looking to put together a complete set of the full series.

But that nearly $200 price tag does get you a magnificently made copy of the book, with

Coronavirus Questions Answered: What We Know About COVID-19

One of the worst symptoms of any plague is uncertainty—who it will strike, when it will end, why it began. Merely understanding a pandemic does not stop it, but an informed public can help curb its impact and slow its spread. It can also provide a certain ease of mind in a decidedly uneasy time. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about the COVID-19 pandemic from TIME’s readers, along with the best and most current answers science can provide.

A note about our sourcing: While there are many, many studies underway investigating COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-19, the novel coronavirus that causes the illness, it is still essentially brand new to science. As a result, while we’ve drawn primarily on peer-reviewed studies published in scientific journals, we have cited some yet-to-be-published research into important aspects of COVID-19 when appropriate.

Lesson from Coronavirus: Build Better Balconies

From my living room on the fourth floor, I can see treetops swaying in the springtime breeze, and I can feel the warmth of the sunlight spilling onto my lap. The great outdoors and its surreal calmness (as if there isn’t a novel virus wreaking havoc across the globe) are right on the other side of my window, and yet in the age of social distancing, the obstacles to get there seem immense.

For those of us in apartment buildings, every leg of the journey, from the apartment front door to the outside world, could increase our chances of catching the virus. The narrow hallways and small elevators could put us too close to our neighbors and their germs; door handles and buttons carry yet more risk.

If only I had one of those, I mutter as I look over to my neighbors’ balconies. I daydream
